Young Whitetail SOLD

Young Whitetail 10x8 oil on canvas SOLD
This painting was my donation to the Aspen Wildlife Sanctuary's first online auction. This wonderful facility is world-renowned as a place where injured or orphaned wild animals are rescued and rehabilitated.  With the exception of a few "permanent residents" -- those who unfortunately can never again survive in the wild -- human interaction is kept to a minimum. Over the years, most of the Sanctuary's animals have been successfully returned to their natural habitat. The Aspen Wildlife Sanctuary relies solely on donations, and its volunteer staff often includes young people from around the world.  It's a worthwhile cause, run by people with a true compassion.  You can check out their website at:


  1. I love the blue tinges in this painting, Helene!!!! Especially in his eyes. Well done!!! I will be checking on your link to the sanctuary..... We have a horse rescue/winery here on LI, NY where no horses are's wonderful to see the kindness in people. And Congratulations on selling this painting.....

  2. Thank you, Hilda. As a fellow animal lover, you will find the Aspen site interesting.

    Your work is better than ever -- and That's saying something! All you portrait work is accomplished, but your recent self-portrait is especially so. Lovely work, Hilda. Oh, and congratulations on your 50 year anniversary!

  3. Loving this one. I sat and enjoyed the discoveries of wonder in this painting by talented YOU.
    Great cause too - your halo is shining brightly, my friend!
